I surf around on Pinterest when I am waiting or…
This is something I really need to try to spice up our boring cement slab yard/pool area!!!
So much FUN!!!
We can do this!!!
So I needed some quiche in my freezer to be able to pull out instead of the nasty frozen dinners LOL
Simple fast recipe for Sausage/Mushroom Quiche
1 lbs of mushrooms (sliced)
1 lbs of Hot Italian sausage
1/2 cup of fresh parsley (chopped)
1 cup half-and-half cream
1/2 cup Parmesan Cheese (grated)
1 unbaked 9″ pie crust
How to make this:
Preheat oven at 400F (200C)
Prepare the mushrooms into smaller sliced bites (no stems)
Crumble the sausages in a large skillet, add mushrooms, cook on medium/high heat until the meat and mushrooms are lightly browned and all the liquid from the mushrooms has evaporated. Drain off the grease. Add parsley.
In a large bowl, beat the eggs, adding the cream, cheese, salt and pepper. Pour into the mushroom/sausage mix; blending well. Pour mixture into the pie shell.
Bake in preheated oven for 25-30min, until crust is well browned and the filing is set. Let it stand for 10 min before serving
All done and here is my quiche (it has a good medium spicy bite to it)
I adapted the recipe from allrecipe.com (Sausage Mushroom Quiche)
I have been asked many many times to share my knowledge about knitting/crochet/felting/dyeing fibers etc.
So here is my question to you:
Let me know what you like me to explain/clarify/simplify related to the above mentioned arts and crafts, by either sending me an email at firstname.lastname@example.org or leaving a comment below.
There are no secrets for me to hide. I will explain it to you or refer u to other online content or whatever it might take.
Even if you have a question about a project you are working on, send me the pattern/pics etc and I’m pretty sure I can help you out from here
I will work through all your questions one blog post at a time, promise!
So go ahead and ask!!! I’m waiting….
Avocados are delicious and very loved in our household so I was joking around with my hubby last night that I could grow it out of the 2 pits I used tonight for dinner
That said, I got the pits, glass of water, toothpicks out and prepared the pits for their long journey (few weeks/months) to becoming a yummy avocado tree.
I think the picture will show you enough detail of how it’s done
I read I have to refresh the water every 2 days so hopefully I won’t forget that
To let you be part of this progress I will every day take a picture and post it. This blogging is so much fun
Finally here are the “pits in progress”
The picture frames I found yesterday are in need of a makeover to fit my beach interior decorations
So this is how i found them before I tackled the 6 picture frames:
(The 6th one is larger so you will see it in the next pictures)
I want them look weathered with some color coming through, you will see what I mean…
I used Gesso (white) since I have a big bottle of it, to set kind of a base to cover the brown of the wood.
(Instead of gesso you can use any acrylic paint in whatever color you fancy of course)
One coat done:
No I have to let it dry and apply a second coat of gesso.
Here is my setup on the dining room table:
This second coat needs to really dry so we all have to wait...:)
I will show you the next stages as I get there of course!
So as my previous post told you I rescued two plants today from the trash
As I blogged and talked about this little adventure on Facebook, I had no idea that I would be ending up, getting my arm twisted to go “alley” trash shopping again…
We have sooooo many alleys in this area so I was only able, in 85F, to cover 4 alleys on my treasure hunt.
Well off I went, really 2 steps in the alley behind our house I found 6 picture frames and a “wreath” plastic container box…SCORE. And easy cos I could just turn around and leave it in our garage.
One alley over I found a big(ger) picture frame (no glass though) but some dunes/ocean pic (B&W) in it. Fine, mine!
Walking in the alley, made me giggle especially when I decided why not take all the empty bottles too. I go to the recycle center every 2-3 months anyway, it’s cash money baby!! Well, picked up two big garbage bags of empty bottles up while treasure hunting in the alleys
I saw a lot of furniture, desks, tables, chairs etc…just needed a facelift.
Oh and all the things you can do with clothing….that’s for next time
So guess what I will be doing soon…YES!!! I will start refinishing the frames and use them!!
What a fun day!!! And it was so much fun interacting with everyone on my Treasure Hunt!!!
Thank you for participating!!!
See you tomorrow, much love :)
On my daily morning walk I notice, while crossing the alley, that someone threw out 2 perfectly nice house plants in some old wasted basket.
I hate seeing things go to waste and I love plants so you guessed it
Perfectly goes within my budget too (don’t laugh…ah well…laugh!!!) FREE!!!
Immediately after I dropped off the puppy at home, I walked back and took the 2 plants.
I forgot to take picture of both
Here is a pot I still had in the garage, with some soil too
Thrifty and free!!!
Here they are ready to go on my dining room table
Gotta look up what kind of plants they are though…do you know?
